Starting from Illaweena Street, Drewvale, this walk takes you on a circuit in the serene Karawatha Forest, crossing a lagoon and a creek along the way. This peaceful piece of bushland and wetland is home to 100+ bird species. Other than birds, you may run into koalas, kangaroos and lace monitors(reptiles). If lucky, you can even spot a greater glider or a green-thighed frog. There is an extensive web of well signposted tracks in the forest which you can choose from, and most of them provide a decent amount of shade. Keep an ear out for mountain bikers. Come early to avoid the crowd and minimize the car noise coming from the road. Dogs are allowed on leash. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
